Ashland Chamber of Commerce Greeters, RVGS Representative. 

This group meets every Friday at a different member business at 8:15 AM (and on the 4th Thursday of the month they meet at 5:15 PM.)  RVGS would love to have someone attend at least one Greeters meeting each month, to share what’s upcoming at RVGS, make our rack cards available, and answer any questions.  It is a great opportunity to learn about Ashland (and other nearby) businesses, including other nonprofits.  It is fun to showcase our upcoming classes, seminars, interest groups, and free programs. 

Annual Fund Drive Coordinator. 

he annual fund drive’s procedures are already in place…they just need someone to implement them.  The major tasks are launching the fund drive by updating the fund drive letter (with help from others), arranging for it to be printed and mailed, and periodically submitting a brief article for the monthly RVGS eNews. 

Maintenance Coordinator

The Maintenance Coordinator is responsible for oversight and upkeep of our building, communicating with the Board of Directors regarding hiring of contractors and maintenance requirements, and oversight of the cleaning contractor. Basic handman skills are helpful, but not required. The full position description can be found here

Technology Coordinator

The Technology Coordinator works closely with the Director of Technology & Data Management, assisting primarily with the maintenance of library computers and hardware. Experience in hardware trouble shooting, updating, and maintenance is required. 


Learn more about the RVGS Library's hidden treasures by volunteering to be a librarian.  No experience necessary.  Training will be provided.  There are three-hour shifts 10 AM to 1:00 PM available (if we are able to recruit enough volunteers to expand our open hours.)  There are always two librarians on duty. Click here to read a detailed position description. Contact Library Director Anne Billeter at librarian@rvgslibrary.org for additional information.

Zoom Host Coordinator

Almost all of the RVGS classes and programs require a Zoom host (and sometimes two).  While a number of Zoom hosts are trained, they need to be contacted and scheduled so that all events are adequately Zoom hosted.  Most months in 2024 there will be 2 or 3 events requiring Zoom hosts.  Not a big task, but a very necessary one! 

Education Committee Members

Education Committee members coordinate educational activities of the Society, primarily focusing on classes, free programs, and seminars. If you have a strong interest in genealogy education, this is the committee for you! 

Quilt Committee Members

Quilt Committee members are responsible for preserving and displaying the Society’s quilt collection, and providing educational programs that focus on the relevance of quilts and other heirlooms to family history and genealogy. 

Scholarship Committee Members

Scholarship Committee members are responsible for administering the Society’s annual high school scholarship program. Duties include reviewing submitted applications, selecting a successful recipient, and monitoring the overall parameters and funding of the program. This committee meets approximately four times per year and currently has an opening for a member volunteer. 

eNews Submissions

Members are invited and encouraged to write articles and/or submit photos for the eNews that are relevant to genealogy research and/or RVGS. The eNews is published on the first of each month. The deadline for article submission is the 20th of the preceding month. Send articles to enews@rvgslibrary.org
